James Carville was reportedly complaining about the way the Democratic message has been muddled in recent weeks. He also wondered what gives when it comes to the running of John Edwards: “He’s a racehorse, and you’ve got to get him on the track.”
There are times when all one wants from a Veep candidate is to avoid major mistakes or massive spelling errors. But that was never the case when it comes to John Edwards. He was selected specifically because of his stumping skills.
So where is he? Has he made a dent in any issue or any moment since being picked? I don’t know whether this is a Kerry problem or an Edwards problem, but it sure seems like a problem.
